Emerging Arts Professionals, genARTS Silicon Valley, and Djerassi Resident Artists Program invite you to join us for an afternoon getaway and fishbowl discussion about crafting career decisions.

Crafting a career in the arts is rife with decisive moments. How do we approach them? Who do we turn to for advice? Join Bay Area arts professionals, administrators and artists at all stages to discuss the decisions we make affecting our careers.

1:00 – 3:00 pm

Hike in small groups through Djerassi’s stunning landscape to see a handful of the almost 40 on-site sculpture installations by past artists-in-residence and use the time to think and share about your career experiences, pivotal moments and transitions. Bring layers and shoes suitable for hiking on steep dirt trails.

2:30 – 5:00 pm

Replenish with delectable snacks by Djerassi’s Chef, Dan Tosh.

3:00 – 5:00 pm

Reconvene in the Artists’ Barn for the fishbowl discussion.

We have invited some arts professionals to get the conversation started, but we need you to jump into the fishbowl to keep it going. Come with thoughts in mind or discuss on the fly. Walk away with new inspiration and contact information for that awesome person whose brain you have been dying to pick.

Need a ride or willing to drive? Carpooling is highly recommended. Join the event on Facebook ( and post a message to connect with people in your area who need a lift or are able to provide one.
